    I plan to add this breed to round out my first flock by next spring, if you could share pics, stories, or temperament with me that would be great. I like their look! Curious to know more. So show me your flock!

    Ooh! I'll have to post pics of my dominique! [​IMG] We had one in the past who was nice, came running when you called, and beautiful, but sadly she died from what we think was egg binding. [​IMG] Now I have a six week old dominique pullet who is a little scittish since she's new, but that will probably change quick. [​IMG] I'll post pics soon of both.

    I know it's not the best pics but I still think she's pretty. [​IMG]

    I found a guy on eBay from KY that sells Dominique eggs, they are listed now, I was thinking of buying an incubator this winter and maybe hatching some. ( of course I wouldn't buy them now, I'd wait). Anyone ever used his eggs, positive reviews are on the site.

    The chick in the picture is a barred rock, which has a single comb. Dominiques have rose combs. He's pretty anyway though and you should be happy to have a rock! [​IMG] Oh, [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
